Sigma group is divided – the success story of Sigma IT becomes Nexer
The Sigma Group has grown from 1400 to 5000 employees since it went private in 2013, when it was bought back from the stock exchange market by Danir. The company will now split, to increase the customer value with new services and markets, and to promote even further growth. Nexer will be the new growth company within digitalisation, AI, IT and R&D, starting with revenues of 2 Billion SEK and 1500 employees in nine countries. The company grew by 15 percent in 2020 and the long-term goal is to turn over 5 Billion SEK by 2025, according to the CEO Lars Kry.
To develop and grow with even more services and a larger global presence, Sigma IT now takes the next step and becomes the tech company of the future – Nexer.
Nexer, headquartered in Gothenburg, plans to grow significantly the coming years. Within five years, CEO Lars Kry plans to more than double the size of the company.
“To meet our customers’ demand for a strategic partner with world leading know-how and long experience of digitalisation, we are now creating Nexer. Transforming Sigma IT into Nexer with great speed gives energy to the whole organisation. Our continued journey will be very exciting; it’s not every day you get to transform a large Swedish company like this”, says Lars Kry, CEO of Nexer.
Nexer has a strong customer and partner focus, and the ongoing collaborations with clients and partners will continue. The company has for a long time been a strategic partner in digitalisation, which is now strengthened with new services within strategy, technology and communication. This will create increased customer value and growth both in Sweden and internationally.
“With Nexer, we continue to build on our strong culture, where social responsibility is close to our hearts. We will always work for a promising future as a responsible company”, Lars Kry concludes.
Nexer is part of the Danir Group. Danir is a Swedish, privately held company with the long-term strategy of continuing operations, without exit plans. In 2020 Danir had revenues of 6.6 Billion SEK with 8,000 employees in 16 countries.
Nexer is further strengthened by a new long-term owner in Inbox Capital AB, owned by the Wattin family. John Wattin has a solid business experience and has together with his son Martin Wattin successfully built the investment firm Inbox Capital, which now owns 10.3% of the Nexer Group. Besides Inbox Capital, the management of Nexer owns 7% and the remaining 82.7% is owned by Danir. John Wattin joins the board of Nexer.
